GATZ RETURNS!


GATZ

PRESENTED BY ELEVATOR REPAIR SERVICE
SKIRBALL CENTER NYU
JAN 23 - FEB 3, 2019

GATZ is an amazing adaptation of an old American Classic book. The tremendous Scott Shepherd is reprising GATZ, the "Elevator Repair Service" performance of a word for word "reading" and on-stage becoming of THE GREAT GATSBY.

>>"One morning in the shabby office of a mysterious small business, an employee (Scott Shepherd) finds a copy of The Great Gatsby in the clutter on his desk. He starts to read it out loud and doesn't stop. At first his coworkers hardly notice. But after a series of strange coincidences, it's no longer clear whether he's reading the book, or the book is transforming him into its narrator. "

It's about six hours long, (plus about 90 min to go out for dinner at an intermission), at the NYU Skirball Center (nyuskirball.org) . The almost 8 hour immersion in this interpretation and this story and this performance is a powerful, unforgettable and uniquely affecting audience experience.

If you've ever wondered what THE GREAT GATSBY is really about, check out this theater treasure.
